Thoughts on Slavery

Recently we saw an exhibit of African slavery in Mexico. Did other forms of slavery exist in Mexico in the past? In what form? Why did the colonizers choose to use slaves?

Does any form of slavery still exist today? Explain your reasoning.

Making children beg in the streets for money can be considered a form of slavery. What does everyone think?

I agree and disagree with Mr. Ferguson because poor children on the streets are kind of slaves because they are treated also like garbage, but they are not because no one is making them do that.

i agree with him because those kids maybe dont have any parents so they have to work or beg for the things they need.Maybe they work for other people and those people tell the kids to do stuff.

It is true that people make children or adults beg for money. And I think that we have brought this up in community circle and that may refresh our minds.

Mr . Ferguson , did you know , that a little girl long time ago that she was and her parents were slaves and that they where weak and they wanted to kill them ,
after they killed her parents ,the slave killers had to take a brake . while they where taking a brake , the girl had run away . this is a non fiction .

I think slavery was not fair, because they are all people and yhey should have the same rights. If slavery hadnt exist the europeans wouldnt had sorvived because the slaves ehre the ones who looked for the food, cleaned, hunted, etc. (im not saying there should be slavery). For example our nanas Do our food,clean,do favors to us(but they are not force to) They get payed and tghey have the same rights as us. And if they dont whant to work for u any more they dont have to and they have the right to quit.

I think that slavery was very unfair back then. I think that because they were forced to work and do what slave owners told them to do. Why did slaves have to be black? Why couldn't slaves have been white? When was the first slave gotten? Who was it?

Mr.F I think youre right in one way because some children that askes for money in the streets are obligated by their parents and exploted and because of that they cant goto shcool and be educated. Also I desaggree with you because some children help their parents and in the free time they go to shcool (most children go to the night shcool. Also because children are not owed by nowone and are not sell to nowone, but some times chidren are left in the trashcan

I think that slavery is very bad becouse people of Africa or of any other part of the world had to go to a place that they did not whant to go.I also belive that it was terrible becouse they did not even get paid for the hard work they were doing.
